The Wicked Witch of the East -- or me on a DD...

Good evening, ladies. Well, one thing I've been having a little bit of a problem with during my first week on JUDDD is irritability on DD's. It's something I hadn't really noticed before but I sure do this time. To give you a little example, I got so mad at my mop the other day, because it wouldn't fit properly in the little indented area where it's supposed to go in this bucket I have (this sounds so ridiculous as I type it) that I almost broke it. I literally had to walk away and calm down. From a MOP. lol

Oh my goodness -- any tips/experiences/suggestions? I know someone has already suggested sipping tea to me, throughout the day, and I think I will implement this. Sounds calming, if nothing else! lol

No one wants to feel crabby, but if you do, the mop is a good target ... yell at it all you want.
The good news is that if it is related to DD hunger, it will pass soon as you start getting comfortable on DDs. hang in there!

Oh Deena, that poor innocent mop! I know I have noticed a few DDs like that for myself. It's no fun. But mostly they aren't like that. I imagine it's just the adjustment period, and you'll get past it pretty fast.

Now, back away from the mop and bucket.....

I don't take them as yet, but is this where supplementing with pterostilbene or resveratol can be helpful in lending a little bit of assistance with blood sugar or hunger-related crankiness?

See, eg: Please post your pterostilbene results :)

It sounds like on DDs you may be missing something your body needs. What, if anything do you eat?

Your mop might like you to know that chamomile tea is very calming.

awwww, I've btdt! Trust me, the mop is much better at dealing with this than your family members are! Ah yea, not that I know anything personally about this or anything. Ahem. I still have some moodier down days, but overall, I find getting OUT of the house and in to fresh air helps. Eating a little bit of protein helps me, too, if I'm really out of sorts.

I don't know if this will help or if any other Judders do it (I just started) but I am usually someone who gets VERY cranky when I am hungry. And I have been a-okay on Judd (so far but anyways, the past few months I have started taking l-glutamine between meals. I read the Diet Cure, that's where I got it from. I take it for cravings, but it also helps keep blood sugar stable. I have experienced times where I am feeling so irritable and hungry and I take it and am fine.

The weirdest thing is that on UP days I don't ever forget to take it. On DD I always forget!! I have no idea why. MAYBE could be b/c when I feel hungry on a DD, I think "oh it's normal, it's a DD." And on a UP when I start to feel that way between a meal I think "Oh I need my l-glutamine!"

Anyways it seems to help me. The other thing that has been helping is taking psyllium 2-3 times a day with meals, and eating 3 small meals instead of 1-2 larger ones.

Yeah DD's can bring out some mood issues from time to time. What's even worse for me is DD's and TOM. Watchout! No, but seriously I do understand. Sometimes the simplest things can drive you up the wall. I remember when I first started someone mentioned sipping broth to help with the hunger, or the BP coffee (bullet proof coffee)? Idk if you're a coffee drinker, but some say that helps. However, caffeine may not help with the irritability. Hope you have a better DD.

haha I know exactly what you mean! I am not a fun person around the first couple of weeks getting back to JUDDD. I love food!!!

On DD, I find eating something small every few hours helps. As well as taking chromium and L-glutamine -- those 2 are great for balancing blood sugar. I am also guilty of forgetting.

My poor students, sometimes I snap at them for no reason. Tuck in your chair! Do your work! lol.

Just come on here and vent it out or go for a walk that always helps me

This is me too! I'm especially irritated at him when I *tell* him what day it is and then he later proposes something non-DDish. I'm like - I TOLD you today's a DD! Why would I want to go to the BBQ place today???
He's going back to swing shift soon which makes my life a little easier as he's not home for dinner. Then I only have to cook for me & the monkey. He'll eat whatever I'm eating, even if its just roasted veggies and I'll add some chicken for him.

Thanks for sharing your tips and experiences. Lol -- well, while the mop was the only one in danger of getting actually hurt, I have had to walk away from the children a couple of times, too. Especially if they start fighting and yelling at each other -- oh my goodness -- cannot STAND that on a DD!

I did take a St. John's Wort last night (this is something that helps my mood a lot during pms time) -- and that seems to be helping. So I'm not experiencing irritability today -- but what I AM experience are constant trips to the bathroom! Sorry for the TMI, but I just cannot stay out of the bathroom! I swear, I've had maybe 7 glasses of fluid so far, but lost 7 gallons! I am tempted to weight tomorrow (even though I was trying to hold out until my birthday) -- because I suspect a nice whoosh may be happening. Hmmm... decisions decisions....

Oh goodness I need some of that b/c TOM is coming and eerrrgh I can feel it! Chocolate usually makes me feel really good, however, the calories are killer.

You guys are probably going to laugh at me, with all my "I'm not weighing until my birthday" talk... but I couldn't help it. I KNEW I was losing something just because of the sheer volume of... um... water I was losing last night. So I broke down and jumped on the scale this morning. 3 lbs down. Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

Maybe I should have weighed myself this morning, lol. I was up all night going to the bathroom. It was so annoying! I was tired. I never get up constantly in the night. MAYBE once. Yesterday was an UP day so I was confused! Maybe it's a good thing

It is amazing what water weight can do. You guys are going to think I'm crazy when I say this (I know my doctor did) -- but I lost more than 25 pounds in one week once (obviously mostly water weight). This was just after my first daughter was born -- and I'm not counting the weight of the baby that had just vacated my tummy -- lol. Literally, a difference of 25 pounds in 7 days -- guess I'd been retaining a little! :P Crazy, crazy stuff.

That's a fantastic early birthday present.

Wednesday and Thursday I had the "you better get to the bathroom quickly" moments as well. It's not time for me to weigh yet, but I'm thinking good thoughts.
